in midweek, due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

"We can confirm that our fixture against Aston Villa, due to take place on Wednesday 13 January, has been postponed,” Tottenham stated.

"Our previously postponed home fixture against Fulham, originally scheduled for 30 December 2020, will now take place on the same evening (Wednesday 13 January), kick-off 8.15 pm.

"The Premier League informed us of the decision following a request by Aston Villa on the grounds of the number of their players and staff who have either tested positive for COVID-19 or have been placed in isolation.

"Everyone at Tottenham Hotspur sends their best wishes to Aston Villa for a safe and speedy recovery to all those who are affected.

"Details of a new date for our match at Villa Park will be confirmed in due course."

The number of cases at Aston Villa were too high as they have to face Liverpool in a third-round FA Cup on Friday with their youth players and it has remained high and as a result, they have to meet the Spurs in two weeks.
